For the March 9th meetup we welcome a long-time member of the group, Matt Richardson.
Title: Azure Automation and Log Analytics
Abstract: Nobody loves supporting a system that is a complete black box where every issue is a detective story to figure out what is going on and a stressful engineering effort to re-learn how to recover. Discover how to use Azure Automation, Log Analytics, and related services to monitor, maintain, and remediate issues in your Azure cloud environment. Developers will gain a deeper understanding of how they can build observability and resiliency through automated remediations into their systems. Operations will learn how to use those same tools to achieve a comprehensive understanding of what’s happening under the covers and generally rely on the system taking care of itself, or build out new automated remediations as new scenarios are uncovered.
